Holiday Mini!


Have you received your holiday mini catalog in the mail yet?  If not, let me know and I will mail you a copy!

Some of my favorites from the new mini:

The 1800s London Halloween Suite:


which includes the Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder:


and the Spooky Things vinyl:


I am also SUPER EXCITED to try the new Letterpress plates in my Big Shot:


which has some great options for Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day!

And of course the Christmas papers and stamp sets in the Vintage Christmas Suite:


Now is the time to start preparing for the busy holiday season.  There are so many fun ideas for home decor, gifts, holiday cards, etc.   Make time this season to create something from the heart!

I have a lot of stamps.  A whole room full of them.  It’s time for me to share the love.  I have at least 60 used stamp sets priced to MOVE!!!  I will be showing them here in batches according to price.  If you see something you like, let me know.  Stamps sets will be sold on a first come first served basis.  I will have all of these on display at my new catalog open house on Saturday, August 7th.  If you would like to purchase in advance, let me know which ones you want, then stop by or mail a check.  If you live long distance, I can ship them to you priority mail flat rate.

Buy them for your kids.  Buy them for your grandkids.  Buy them for yourself.  I will have opened packages of retired color cardstock, ink, and ink refills as well for sale at the open house.

For those of you who have been with me for the past 6 years, this may be a little trip down memory lane…
